I have 2 younge ringnecks and I’ve been try to tell if there male or female but I can’t seem to come to a decision. My thoughts are that there both female but I am not sure lol so I was hoping someone could help me out. They were born on March 22 if that helps. Thanx in advance

    I'm not familiar with the term ring neck.... Is there another name for the color?

    They are too young to tell right now. It will take about another month before you will be able to visually sex them.

    ETA- taking another 'closer' look at the pics, it's still to early to tell but I 'think' #2 is a male. I'm going by certain facial features and the feathering around the neck and head.

    Thanx man. I know once the males start getting there colour you can tell. I’m hoping for both females. Then I can add them with my pair.

    Be careful how you add them to another pair. Sometimes hens might get along and sometimes they don't...also the cock bird may not get along with the invaders.
